    Default Who is fond of their layers?

    Honestly, all I seem to see are threads or posts dedicated to evil layers or growing them out. Lately. I've been feeling matronly and am thinking of cutting a few light layers in the front for less of the "pilgrim" look. I worry about reducing my ability in sweeping my almost-waist length hair back but think it might be a better alternative to a big hack!

    Who loves their layers?
    Just-past bsl length
    Looking forward to "mermaid-length"

    Me! Me me! I like mine! I know I'm only BSL, but I'm planning on keeping long layers even as my hair gets longer. They help my curls bounce up better and have more movement instead of all hanging flat.

    I love my layers. It helps me avoid the pyramid head.

    I'm trying to keep my ends on the thick side so have no layers in the back, but I LOVE the layers around my face. They expand my hair style possibilities 100-fold. If I need to have them back and out of the way, I can twist and pin with pretty little accessories, or do a Dutch braid very close to my hairline, then sweeping back. But most of the time I love leaving some down to soften my style.

    I used to have layers and I loved them. I'm planning on getting layers cut again. I started cutting my hair myself and I didn't know how to cut layers so I gave myself a blunt cut and I hate it because now I have MAJOR triangle head.

    That's exactly why I love my layers, Celtic Curls. Yay for non-pyramid head-hood! Mind you my layers are fairly long, affecting only the last 2.5-4 inches of my hemline.

    I love my layers! I had mostly grown them out, but I actually cut some around my face just today, and absolutely love it. I'll probably cut some a bit shorter, more like long bangs, but my hair lays sooo much better in the front with the layers. I want to cut some more all around, to keep my hair from puffing out so much. But I do love the layers already.
    My routine is in a state of flux
    Hair length: Tailbone. Trying to decide whether I want a minimal trim, or to take off a few inches. It's a scary decision!

    In fact, I cut some more in last night. I like to wear my hair down a lot, and one length hair doesn't suit me so much like that. It's taken a bit of trial and error to work out how to cut them myself, but I like that I can style my hair just as I want, without worrying I will pick a bad hairdresser.

    *raises hand exuberantly* I do! I also have them to avoid the land of pyramid-heads. Mind you, I'm a bit less thrilled with them now that my hair's getting longer and more weighed-down, thus diminishing the pyramid-head, but I will keep my face-framing ones even when my hair gets really long.
